        From Globe & Mail Article:
        Survey question of War of 1812:
        "Only 14 per cent of those interviewed for the Department of Canadian Heritage were able to correctly identify the three countries involved. While Canada was not yet a sovereign nation at the time, the responses researchers were looking for were: Great Britain, the United States and Canada.

        Twenty per cent of respondents incorrectly suggested France also participated in the conflict, and 14 per cent said they did not know, or refused to answer. Others erroneously suggested Japan or Russia or Spain played a part."

        See what happens when everyone agrees that the First Nations lost. Despite the fact that a huge majority of Turtle Island (North America) was Indian, and the huge number of warriors Tecumseh brought to the conflict - you don't get to be part of the survey! Oh right, Department of Canadian Heritage. I mis-spoke, First Nations are not part of Canadian Heritage.
